Our Story

Our software launched in 2008, but our story started a few years earlier.

Founders Mark Baker and Lee Colbran could see a void in the booking system market for software designed specifically for use in Schools. Both working within schools, they were frustrated with how rooms and resources where not being utilised, so they began developing an online solution. We built it for ourselves, knowing there must be other schools that shared our pain.

We're proud to be a profitable, sustainable, self-funded company. That means we're going to be around for the long term.

SchoolBooking is developed and owned by:
